Countries I've Traveled To
Books you might find in my backpack
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Every country I visit is memorable - I love to travel and can't imagine coming home disappointed. Therefore, it's not the most memorable, more a diary of where I've been....

1991 France - first trip away without my family
2004 Germany - my first ever flight!
2004 Luxembourg - standing on the little bridge
2004 France
2005 Latvia - walking on the frozen lake
2006 Greece - seeing the Acropolis
2007 Latvia - taking my mum for the first time
2008 Netherlands - Van Gogh museum and River Cruise
2009 Cyprus - first "beach" holiday
2010 Latvia - feeling like I'm at home
2010 Tunisia - riding a camel, El Djem and Carthage
2011 Norway - being really really cold!
2011 Turkey - chilli flakes in scrambled eggs?!
2011 Malta - Anthony Catania exhibition
2015 Portugal - the Old Town flooding quite badly
2015 Spain - getting drenched to the bone
2016 Italy - my first lasagne
2016 Vatican City - climbing lots of stairs 2 years after heart surgery!
2016 Greece - visited Crete and was really not impressed!
2017 Hungary - was a very difficult trip for me...
2017 Belgium - loved my time here!
2017 Spain - last minute cheap holiday with my mum.
2017 Andorra - short but sweet visit
2017 Austria - bucket list trip to see Mozart’s grave
2018 France - Disneyland Paris
Travel, like life, is not a competition. It shouldn't be about how many places you've visited, or how long you spent there. It shouldi be about how much you got from your visit, how much you enjoyed it, and whether you felt you have experienced all that you set out to do.

Enjoy your travels and don't let anyone else tell you how to plan your life.
